Third Sector Trends Study in Blackburn with Darwen 2019

Community CVS, along with our partners Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council and Durham University, are conducting a unique long-term study on the voluntary, community and faith sector in Blackburn with Darwen and right across the north of England. Regardless of whether your organisation is small, local and volunteer-led or a large organisation with paid staff, flourishing or struggling financially, or just carrying on as normal, we would greatly appreciate it if you were to take 15-20 minutes to complete the survey.

We will use the findings to construct a picture of how groups and organisations work, how you get the resources you need and how you are planning for the future. It would really help us to demonstrate the extent and value of the work we do as a sector, lobby for more resources, draw attention to the challenges you face and enable us to work with local government, health organisations and charitable foundations to make good decisions on how to invest in the activity of the sector.

We’ll be publishing the results from the study in spring 2020 and will make it freely available to you.
